Legal court documents revealed the true reason behind Chris Brown’s anger issues—untreated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

But not just that, he also has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and severe insomnia.

An official from the rehab facility Chris has been staying at for the past three months stated, “Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD.”

According to the documents, obtained by TMZ, the facility says the 24-year-old singer has learned various relaxation exercises to handle this stress.

"Mr. Brown is able to use behavioral strategies to manage acting out on impulses," the director of his rehab program wrote. "He is teaming relaxation exercises that will reduce consequent impulsive behaviors."

During his court appearance on Friday for the 2009 Rihanna assault case, Brown even closed his eyes to meditate for five minutes while his lawyer, Mark Geragos, met privately with the judge and prosecutor, CNN reported.

The letter mentioned that Brown "appreciates what he has learned in the rehabilitation facility, as it has allowed him to change his life for the better."

However, he still has much to learn—at least according to the Los Angeles judge who ordered him to stay another two months in the luxury rehab center in Malibu for more anger management therapy.

Following the hearing, Brown tweeted, “Never really goes the way u plan. #LIFE.” You got that right!
